Shotlist

"ROADS WILL ALWAYS BE ROUGH, TO A LIMITED EXTENT--SO THAT THE RIDE MUST BE SMOOTHED OUT BY THE AUTOMOBILE. THE SMOOTHING IS DONE BY KNEE ACTION."

Great shots of POV Roller coaster and other amusement park rides. Late 1930s car bouncing over rough road/ unpaved "road".

Subject: Taking the bumps away.
So so examination of how shock absorbers take away the bumps on the roads. Although it attempts to distract us first by giving us great Coney Island footage (!!) the film then seagues into a somewhat boring methodology film of how car riders can now ride with more comfort on the road. A smiliar, and much better themed film is 'Around The Corner'
